fake a fix without frogging?
After I moved my lifeline to the next repeat (of course), I noticed a mistake in my knitting in the previous section. I missed a purl row right before the YO row. I tried to show it in the photo.

Even though it would be easy enough to frog down to one of those K rows, I REALLY don't want to. Is there a way I can fake a fix? I guess it's not that noticeable, but it might be once I block it. Maybe I can do a duplicate st or something before/after it's blocked?

TIA.

boy, I don't know how to fix it. It looks so pretty though! Will you notice it that much? (well, you will, but will anyone else!?)

I don't think there is anything you can do, but it doesn't look bad. If it is going to drive you crazy to know it has a little mistake maybe you should rip it back, other wise don't bother.

I agree that you'll be the only one who can see it. If it really bothers you, I'd vote for the duplicate stitch. Hopefully you can do it and secure it well without making the reverse side look bad.

It's beautiful.

I have never heard of doing a duplicate stitch in purling over a knit row. If anyone knows how to do this I'd like to learn. Can you point me in the right direction? I only know how to do duplicate stitch in knitting over knitting.

not so bad
Thanks, everyone, for helping (and saying nice things about my scarf ). I should have said "some kind of duplicate st" because I don't know if there's such a thing either. You're all right too... it's not really that noticeable. I'll just get over it. I'd be interested though, to learn if there is a st I could do that would mock a purl row.
Anyone?

I would never have noticed the mistake if you hadn't marked it! The sweater is beautiful! Can you tell us where you found the pattern and yarn?

pattern
Actually, it's a scarf, not a sweater.... but thanks for the compliment! It doesn't look like much on the pattern website, but I found a few other knitters who posted their FOs and it looks so great with variegated yarn. I'm using Manos del Uruguay silk blend. I'd knitted up a few other swatches and they looked terrible... color pooled or pattern got lost or whatever. Finally I found a pattern that the yarn loves...

On the duplicate stitch - maybe the serpentine pattern of duplicate stitch would work with the knit side to the back and the purl bumps on the front. Maybe an embroidery style stem stitch securing it to the row below as you make the backwards loops to simulate the purl bumps. Hard to tell looking at the pic. If I'm all wrong here, please excuse.

But sometimes it better to just leave well enough alone.

The scarf is lovely just as it is.
